THIS IS BIG OMAHA.
A platform to engage, connect, inspire, and be inspired. A showcase for the cultural capital of our community and an invitation to the world to join in. It’s a rallying cry to believe in something bigger, a kick in the pants to take the next big step, and a chorus of encouragement as we roll up our sleeves and get to work. This is what Big Omaha has always been and what this conference will continue to be. Only now, it’s part of something bigger – a shared vision to broaden the opportunity for engagement and an avenue to elevate our region in national and global conversation. This year, the 10th Big Omaha, we’re celebrating the energy and passion of the past while putting a stake in the ground for the future.
THIS IS ENTREPRENEURSHIP.
In 2018, we can’t help but rethink the very idea of what it means to be an entrepreneur. We are a culture of inventors, makers, and creators. Whole industries are being transformed every day and rather than stand on the sidelines and watch it happen, we’ve been handed the tools to help shape this ball of clay. From side hustle to full-on startup, an entrepreneurial current runs through the culture. And that’s who this conference is for – anyone with an idea, a dream, and a desire to make something happen.
WE CALL THIS HOME.
Our burgeoning city on the Plains, known for its understated character and ethos of hard work, is showing the world what we’ve always known: It’s not just the loudest voices who have something to say.
For a solid decade, thousands of people from across the country and around the globe have come here to engage, connect, and hear from brilliant innovators who have not only done big things themselves, but inspired countless others to do the same.
